Publisher's Summary

In this heartwarming, suspenseful, and hilarious novel, Callahan Garrity and the outrageous band of "girls" in her Atlanta cleaning crew join together during the Christmas rush to prove that her trailer-trash brother didn't kill his even trashier estranged wife.
It's a few days before Christmas, and sometime sleuth/full-time cleaning lady Callahan Garrity has things under control for a change, until her never-do-well brother, Brian, shows up. He's kidnapped his toddler daughter, Maura, from his estranged wife, a vengeful shrew with the law on her side.
When his ex-wife is found dead, the cops suspect Brian. To save her brother and her holiday, Callahan, along with her irascible mom, Edna, and a gaggle of House Mouse employees, will crisscross yuletide Atlanta, going everywhere the search for truth leads.

Is it Christmas?

A light murder mystery surrounded by the custody of a child. Not really a Christmas book but it was happening around the Holiday Season. A Mother-in-Law takes on the responsibility of protecting her granddaughter from her Mother who has less that any moral compass when it comes to the welfare of her child. When the Mother is found murdered everyone involved in the sweet child's life becomes a suspect.

Callahan Garity, her aunt, is a retired PD officer and private detective so understandably she is on the case to clear her family and protect her niece. Corruption and unsolved murders start cropping up while she is conducting her investigation. A pretty good mystery with real characters. Hillary Huber's good narration added to the story and took it from a 3 to a 4 for me.

Over the top

Aside from a change in brother's name from Keith as mentioned in last book, there was a lot of illegal actions on Callahan's and her mother's part. I was a bit exasperated by their actions and those of the irresponsible brother, as well as screaming for tests as soon as Brian showed up with the kid. I'm glad there's only one book left because when people take so many irrational actions I start to root against them. Only sane person is Max-who needs to rethink his relationship with Callahan.
